Review:

In this time where everyone seems to be suing everyone else, and nothing bad that happens seems to be any individual's fault, this is a timely and important and useful book. Vincent Barry dissects the language of avoiding personal responsibility ("It's not my job.," "How was I supposed to know?," "Boys will be boys," etc.) and lays out some good ideas for empowering ourselves and our kids by learning to take responsibility for our actions and our lives. My only quibble was with the title, because one time the dog really did eat my homework, honest, and my teacher made fun of me. Otherwise, a fine and long overdue book!
